The Capitals held their annual Casino Night on Wednesday, where fans dropped serious cash on live and silent auctions. Caps players couldn’t participate in those auctions, but they were given a bunch of raffle tickets.
One of the items up for grabs: a chance to meet Alex Ovechkin. “It is my dream!” Dmitry Orlov joked as he looked over the raffle items.
Ovechkin put about twenty tickets randomly in various bags. Now I can’t confirm this, but Ovechkin appeared to have placed tickets in the raffle to meet himself. Vintage Ovi.
With all those tickets, Ovi naturally came away with prizes. He didn’t win that Matt Wieters-signed baseball he was so excited about in the photo above, but he did end up the proud owner of Six Flags America tickets and a three-month gym membership.
That last one is probably unnecessary.
